Hi rabphxaz ,
  The answer to the second part of your first question (if you have not heard yet),
is to use the "arcs version" if you want to generate g2 or g3 moves in place of dozens of short tiny g1 moves.
 be sure to check the"mach arc inches" or" mach arc mm" whichever you prefer to work in.

Brett and Hood,
Tried downloading from the top of the page and am getting error messages that say a "decompression error has occurred (#5). I then have the options to abort, retry, or ignore. I ignored the first 2, but I aborted after the third one. Please advise.
Thanx, Bob

Are you trying to download and save or run? Try to save to your desktop and then run.

Hi Hood,
Tried again, same thing. I'm wondering if the problem is with my computer, because I remember the same thing happening when I first downloaded Mach a month ago. I hit a decompression error and chose IGNORE, which may be the reason why I now can't import Gcode. I will try to line up another computer -- do I need to somehow transfer the license to the other pc to do this?

You can just copy the Mach1lic.dat  file over to your new computer, either by network, cd, email or whatever method. You should find it in the Mach3 folder on your old computer.

Hi Hood,
Well, drove over to a friend's house and tried to download from there. Got the same error message, except that this time it reads, decompression error (#7)" instead of "decompression error (#5). I'm at a loss -- what do you think?
Thanx, Bob

I downloaded yesterday with no trouble. What browser are you using? I'm useing IE 7 and I think Hood is useing Opera.

Are you getting the error while trying to download or when trying to run (install Mach)?

On both computers I saved it to the desktop and then ran the install program. My browser is Firefox, and I think the other computer uses Firefox also. I tried both the link that Hood gave me and the download page from the website. I will try using IE.
